    if you get a good list together will you share it out?

I am familiar with the alcoholic fermentation chapters of Wild Fermentation, and I have read Strong Waters too. They are pretty good for beginners, but one area that is generally not covered well is All Grain beer brewing. 

I am aware that this is not considered 'beginner' material, but I would like to see a good novice oriented complete explanation.

There are some all grain brewing techniques that are very beginner friendly (like brew in a bag) and the science behind it is quite interesting too.

Hi to all,
>I would like to ask for an advice concerning buying a good books for 
learning fermentations focused on alcoholic ferments and preferably for 
beginners. The books should not be just a list of recipes, preferably 
they would explain the principles of alcoholic brewing, talk about the 
biochemistry, microorganisms etc. The fields of interests are beer 
making, wine making, meads and we would love to get some good one 
especially about cider. I think a book just about various 
types of yeasts would be great too. 
>We are preparing an order for Susubori Academy which is a project under 
Kyonggi University (Seoul) focused on brewing of traditional Korean 
alcoholic rice drink called makgeolli. I have made a short list of books which I know 
about below but I would like to ask for more recommendations. 
>The Art of Fermentation - Sandor Ellix Katz
>Strong Waters: A Simple Guide to Making Beer, Wine, Cider and Other Spirited Beverages at Home - Scott Mansfield
>Sacred and Herbal Healing Beers: The Secrets of Ancient Fermentation - Stephen Harrod Buhner
>So any recommendations are appreciated, I will be in touch shortly, I am 
hitting the road for the next three days will be back on Saturday.
